  • Prior to Sammi, I had a day of coordinator who wasn’t up front about pricing and we had to let him go. I was scrambling a month before the wedding to find someone and my sister found Sammi on the knot. When I reached out to her, she got back to me quickly, was up front with her very reasonable pricing, and she was so on top of everything. I was working nights and she flexed to my schedule for meeting times that worked for me. She coordinated everything with the vendors, she met with me and my mom and vendors as many times as she needed to in order to have everything set up. She handled the rehearsal and the wedding day flawlessly, and she even stayed to assist with clean up when we were having a hard time with it, even though we hadn’t paid her to do that service. When I went through wedding gifts, she left me a card and a gift card. All in all, Sammi was the best thing we invested money into for the entire wedding process. Thank you for everything Sammi!

    Thank you so much for your amazing review Abby! I am honored to hear that Wishful Weddings was the best investment you made during your entire wedding process! I really enjoyed getting to know you during our month of planning! I wish you and Sam the best of luck on your new endeavors in California!

  • We unfortunately had to postpone our wedding due to COVID and Sammi was unavailable on our new date. She was extremely responsive and flexible while we were figuring things out and was so gracious to refund our deposit when we realized it ultimately wouldn't work out. I'm very sad to not have Sammi coordinate our day! Prior to canceling, she had been very helpful for finding vendors and determining logistics for the day. While I can't speak to the day-of-coordination experience, everything up until this point was fantastic. Thank you, Sammi!

    Thank you so much for your review Jamie, I really appreciate it! I am so disappointed and sad that I won’t be able to be your day-of coordinator next year, but I am so happy that I was able to help you find some of your vendors! Take care :)

  • Sammi was absolutely wonderful as our day-of coordinator for our May 2021 wedding! We are fortunate enough to be Sammi's first wedding in the Austin-area and she did such an incredible job. Sammi was very responsive and met with us multiple times before the wedding to clarify details. We hired Sammi for her Stunning Silver package as we had most everything planned. She took care of ensuring the vendors knew where and when to show up at the day of the wedding, had a detailed and thoughtful timeline planned, and made the entire day stress free. If you need a day-of coordinator for your wedding I highly recommend hiring Sammi. Thank you again Sammi! Jordan & Jacian

  • Sammi is AWESOME! Not only is she an excellent point of reference for all these things I know nothing about, but she's also creative and just an all-around pleasant person to work with. We live out-of-state but wanted to get married back home. Sammi was our 'boots on the ground', and trust me, we sent those boots everywhere! My wife and I are planners, which sometimes makes it hard to work with others since we mostly know what we want; but not Sammi. She had a plethora of recommendations on hand, and if we still couldn't find the right vendor, she went out and found more. Sammi scheduled the interviews and guided us through choosing the best ones for us. She showed up in person to every meeting for us, and kept track of all of the bureaucratic (adult-stuff), so we were always on the same page. Sammi was always prepared with her own set of questions to ensure we had the answers to things we hadn’t thought about. She debriefed us each time and reassessed our priorities. At one point...

    Thank you so much AJ for your incredible review! I absolutely loved working with you and Aubrey! Planning a wedding in 2020 had its many challenges and I am so grateful that I was able to help you overcome those challenges and help you have a wonderful wedding! The three of us truly make an amazing team! I am so thankful that we are still able to keep in-touch and keep up in each other's lives!

  • I really wanted a day of coordinator to just help the day go smoothly so I wasn’t worried about last minute things coming up! I already had everything planned so really didn’t need a lot of help. I am SO GLAD I hired Sammi and Felicia. I got so lucky and they were both able to help at my wedding. I truly don’t know what I would’ve done without these girls. They set up my beautiful donut walls, helped decorate and keep us on time. I would 100% recommend them to anyone!!! So worth it and so helpful. Thank you guys so much :)

  • We cannot say enough positive things about Sammi! She was a huge supporter and confidant throughout our wedding planning and postponement due to COVID-19. She responded promptly and thoroughly to emails, texts and calls, and she always maintained a positive and encouraging attitude no matter how frequently we reached out. We felt completely supported by Sammi and consider her to be a friend rather than a business partner. Hire her!

    Thank you so much for your amazing review MacKenzie! I was always more than happy to help you and Rob through anything because you two are such a fun and caring couple! I am so thankful that I can call you two friends!

  • Sammi is simply amazing! I could probably write a book about how thankful I am I had her by my side through my whole wedding planning process, but here are some highlights as to why everyone should HIGHLY consider hiring her as their planner! Prompt - when I initially reached out to Sammi she got back to me so quickly. We were able to schedule an initial consultation and start planning right away. Throughout the process anytime I had a question, comment, request, moments of anxiety/stress I would reach out to Sammi and she would always get back to me in a timely manner. Professional/organized - Sammi was always very professional. She’s always on time (or super early) and she does a great job of keeping track of everything! Sammi helped me create a budget spreadsheet to keep track of spending and payment due dates. She provided me with a wedding planning timeline so I knew exactly where we were in the process, she kept track of and scheduled all of my appointments with ve... Read more

    Thank you so much Jay for this incredibly sweet review! I had the best time getting to know you and helping you plan your wedding! I wish I was able to celebrate you and Mishac here in Madison, but I am so happy that you two will be getting married in February in Atlanta! I wish you and Mishac nothing but the best! Thank you again for these kind words!

  • Sammi is a great wedding planner! She is knowledgeable, professional and great to work with. We are sad we’re weren’t able to have our wedding due to covid-19, but if we were to do it all over again, we’d choose Sammi. Definitely recommend her!

  • We found Sammi off of Google, and to be honest it was fate that we found her! She was so organized, and she was able to handle tough situations for me. There was one of our vendors that was being difficult, and instead of me stressing over it she took it over and made it right. To have her knowledge and coordination behind us on our wedding day was amazing! I would recommend Sammi and Wishful Weddings to anyone who would need her. Thanks Sammi!

  • When we started planning our wedding, everyone told us we needed to have a day-of coordinator! My husband and I are so pleased that we went with Sammi and Wishful Weddings. Sammi was completely on top of everything! It gave us such peace of mind to know that she was handling all the coordination on our wedding day. The day-of coordination package really was a great value. Sammi set-up pre-wedding meetings with us and came with us to see the venue ahead of time. She also ran the rehearsal and managed all the vendor coordination in the last couple weeks. The questions she had made us think through details we might otherwise have overlooked. It was also fun and reassuring that so many of our vendors had worked with her previously and were excited to work with her again! We kept hearing from our vendors "Your coordinator is Sammi? We love working with her!" Overall our experience with Sammi and Wishful Weddings was excellent! We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a weddin... Read more

I am also overjoyed to hear that many of your vendors love working with me! Thank you for letting me be a part of your beautiful wedding! I absolutely loved working with you and Joe!

  • Hiring Sammi was easily the best decision we made for our wedding. When we started working with her about a year before our wedding, we didn't even know where to start with planning. We knew generally how we wanted the wedding to look and approximately how many people we'd have, but Sammi really helped us get organized and find vendors to make our vision happen. Most of the vendors we ended up settling on were ones she recommended, and they all turned out amazing! The couple of vendors we used that she hadn't worked with before, she seemed to communicate with seamlessly, and she left us with very little to worry about. Throughout the entire planning process she gave us her honest opinions on vendors and helped us consider details that we never would’ve thought about without her. She was also super responsive to our emails and texts about anything wedding-related! On the day of the wedding, she had all of the decorations and vendors coordinated. She prepared schedules for every vendor... Read more

  • We originally had planned to coordinate our wedding ourselves and realized very quickly we were in over our heads. After meeting with a few wedding planners, Sammi was a clear stand out and made us feel like she could make our special day come together. One of the things that we appreciated most, was her willingness to work with vendors that were gay friendly. In a market that is advertised toward straight couples, we wanted to be sure that our vision of love and family was kept at the forefront of any vendor we hired. We hired her for full service. My husband and I are not good with rejecting vendors and are both pretty bad procrastinators. Sammi was able to coordinate everything with vendors for us (as well as rejecting the ones we didn't want). She also made sure that we were making progress on things by sending friendly reminders and making time for meetings at our local coffee shop. She was available to us the entire week of our wedding and coordinated our rehearsal as well. We we... Read more

    Thank you so much for your amazing review! You and Nik were the first full service clients that I booked and you both showed me how to be a great wedding planner! I always looked forward to our coffee shop meetings because you made wedding planning so much fun! Thank you again for the beautiful review! I am so grateful that I was able to be your wedding planner!

  • We are so happy we had Sammi on board to handle the million little details and logistics those last few weeks before our wedding and the day-of. She worked with all of our vendors and put together the full day-of timeline, and even made timelines specifically for the bridesmaids, groomsmen, etc. - I so appreciate that level of organization! It rained on our wedding day and we had to make some last minute changes, and Sammi took care of everything that day behind the scenes - I am so grateful that I didn't have to worry about anything and I could truly enjoy the day. Thank you, Sammi!

  • We hired Sammi for Day of Coordination and it was awesome. I really enjoy planning and having control so I knew that I did not want full wedding planning services, but when I initially looked for Day of Services I realized they were way overpriced. Sammi was affordable and provided so much support for the month leading up to the wedding. Sammi took care of the timeline and coordinating our vendors. Felicia worked with us for the rehearsal dinner and wedding day, and it made everything so much easier. Felicia was very hardworking and fit right in amongst my family and friends. She went with my vision and pretty much set up the decor in the tent singlehandedly. I would definitely recommend Wishful Weddings for Day of Coordination.

  • Sammi was our day-of coordinator for our wedding on September 28th at Villa Terrace. She did a fantastic job contacting our vendors and creating our timeline – she took away a lot of our stress leading up to the wedding! Sammi is easy to work with, reliable, and very organized! The reason we give her 4 stars is because our timeline did get messed up on the day-of. We also had some things that we planned and paid for that didn’t even happen. Sammi is still relatively new to the planning industry and I know that she is going to continue growing and will be in high demand in the future. Overall we are happy with our decision to hire her!
